The prior reviews describe this and the history behind this memorial accurately. It is very moving. We stopped here with 4 kids (tweens and teens). It is definitely worth a walk from town or a short drive to go see this.

we visited the Holocaust Memorial Wall which is just down the street from the Hotel we were staying at. During the war (WW2) the Germans had the stones removed from the graves and made into a footpath so everyone walked over them. Sickening!

Stopped here as we rode around Kazimierz Dolny. Worth stopping for a moment of reflection and contemplation. The wall is a striking way to honour those whose graves were desecrated by the Nazis.

I have ordered an organized tour so visitting this place was included. For about 4 eur you can do it the same at main square. Then you can see a big part of town, Korzeniowy Wawoz and this Sciana Placzu. It is amazing place full...More

This wall is constructed from recovered headstones from the Jewish cemetery that were removed and desecrated during World War II. Plan to take bug spray.

That the recovered tombstones were built into a memorial wall was moving . Walking behind the wall to see the cemetery among tall trees . So peaceful a spot you could feel the centuries , the vastness and the emptiness .

The Holocaust Memorial Wall and the Jewish Cemetery behind it is a very interesting place to see on a warm and dry day. Unfortunately inaccesible in winter with snow on the ground because one can not climb the hill where it is located. Additional problem...More

The cemetery is rather beautiful and the setting makes the split wall all the more shocking. Worth taking the walk

However it is a little bit outside of any walking roads. I had to go a specially for it and later walking around forests to don't come back the same way. One of those things to visit if we've already seen more important places around.

When in Kazimierz Dolny, a stop at this memorial is well worth the time. This Jewish graveyard and memorial is moving and, to a degree, haunting, as an earlier reviewer noted.
